Participation 2012

The participant is committed to:

Organising a week of activities, taking into account the focal theme.
Actions relative to the theme:
Il 21 settembre parte in via speriemtnale la chiusura al traffico veicolare dei due assi commerciali del centro urbano in collaborazione con il CCN (Centro Commerciale Naturale). L’idea è quella di portare il modello dei centri commerciali integrati (gallerie e affini) in città e, a tal fine, è necessario rendere sicuri i percorsi e liberlarli dalle auto. Saranno attrezzate delle aree per la sosta dei veicoli a motore, garantiti dei bus navetta che faranno spola con il centro urbano. Per quanto riguarda la mobilità ciclistica, sarà offerto un servizio di bike sharing con biciclette usate o ricavate da bici dismesse.
